Don’t let the latest stats fool you. When CIHI reports that there were 64, 641 abortions in 2010, (a 40% drop in numbers since 2004) you know that something is up. Sure enough, we see that Quebec no longer reports abortions at all (hospital or clinic), BC has “incomplete” data, meaning that the majority of clinic abortions have not been reported, and Manitoba and New Brunswick have “unreported” clinic abortions. How’s that for shoddy statistics? I don’t suspect that any other surgical procedure in Canada would be so poorly reported.
When Quebec last reported in 2008, they had 27, 319 abortions.
If the numbers aren’t being reported, what does that mean for medical billing? At the very least, taxpayers deserve to know how their money is being spent.
This is an issue that needs to be seriously addressed – we need a public outcry that will get politicians moving. Really, if abortion is such a great, liberating thing, what are they trying to hide?
